Re: Canberra Raiders say George Williams deal not done

I was hoping we told Wigan "drop the transfer fee and we'll give you back Bateman". Then we get George and Luke knocks on their door.

Love the license to attack. You arent goingn to beat this melbourne side by throwing safetly at them. Attack instinctively and defend with intent. Throw your skillset at them

Re: Through green eyes 2019

JC was very good on kick chase in the trial match. It is a feature of his game. I have a different view of tackles and miss tackles. Either make the tackle or don't. If a player misses, it means a team mate has to expend the energy to make the tackle and that can tell at the back end of matches. Ev...

Re: Worst spine in the competition

Actually what was I thinking the knights have Mason Lino in reserve grade. Just move Ponga back to fullback and play Lino at 5/8. There's some quality off contract and moving into first grade in 2020. Caleb Aekins and Ryan Papenhuyzen would be good fullbacks for any club. Alexander Brimson, Jake Cl...

Hoppa is a solid fullback if that's not where you want to spend big dollars but you need to compensate with quality in other spine positions.
I reckon a gullback like hoppa would suit the sharks style of play where as moylan would instantly make the dogs better. They should talk to each other

Re: Jack Wighton confirms switch to five eighth

Seeing Ponga play at five-eighth, it really rams home what a genuine step up from fullback it is in terms of distributing /organising, and a step down in running game Relevant for Wighton.

I just don't see how we could justify paying a transfer like that if it counts under our cap. It's ludicrous!
The club sets up a shelf company solely for the purposes of paying transfer fees. Its apparently ok to cheat in this way.

Re: Canberra Raiders sign England Test half George Williams

Sorry to be a kill joy but the signing makes absolutely no sense to me considering what we're doing with Wighton currently. If Jack achieves the 2019 plan to stiffen the front line defence whilst also adding to the attack in 6, do we then shuffle him again next year to shoehorn in a running half wh...
